02 Jun How COVID Has Changed the Need for PPE
The COVID-19 pandemic has been one of the most challenging and unexpected events that most of us have faced in our lifetime. As we’re finally reaching the light at the end of the tunnel, there still remains an immense amount of uncertainty regarding the future. However, one thing that is abundantly clear is the value of personal protective equipment in the lives of people across the world, particularly those of healthcare and industry workers.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is any gear or equipment that is designed to protect an individual from potential hazards on the job. During the pandemic, all of us became very familiar with one of the most common components of PPE gear – masks. In addition to masks, other forms of personal protective equipment are specifically designed to reduce the spread of germs and disease.
Following the COVID pandemic, the need for PPE and protective sanitation measures has only increased, especially in certain industries like healthcare. We now know the importance of preventing harmful germs and contagious illnesses after having lived through the experience. Easily accessible items of PPE, such as masks, shoe covers, and gloves, will become more prevalent than ever. From doctor’s and dentist’s offices to schools and factories, PPE will be implemented on a larger scale, and certain guidelines developed from the pandemic will remain in place following the end of COVID.
We can also expect new technologies to appear that enable consumers to optimize their use of PPE. One example of this is automatic shoe cover dispensers, which are a hands-free solution to putting on shoe covers. These devices reduce touchpoints, which helps reduce the number of germs spread from user to user.
